Weekend linkdump for November 13

So apparently the Cubs winning the World Series represents a minor plot problem for one of Scalzi’s book series. It’s like that episode of Star Trek: TNG where Picard talks about Fermat’s Last Theorem still being unsolved, an assertion that became untrue five years after that episode aired.

The amazing story of a former MLB prospect who became a mob hitman.

RIP, Robert “Papa Bear” Edwards, founder of the San Antonio AIDS Foundation.

“By the time all the ballots are counted, she seems likely to be ahead by more than 2 million votes and more than 1.5 percentage points, according to my Times colleague Nate Cohn. She will have won by a wider percentage margin than not only Al Gore in 2000 but also Richard Nixon in 1968 and John F. Kennedy in 1960.”
